Thread: Jetbeam BC20

Needed a new flashlight for work, as well as other purposes. Felt that my maglite had done what it could! So I figured I´d see what Heinnie had to offer. My demands were that it´d be sub £50, 200-250+ lumens and have a tail-cap clickie. And here it is
It is as the title states a Jetbeam BC20, running on 2 CR123 batteries with a max output of 305 lumens. It also has a lower setting at 20 lumens. The runtime is very good in my opinion, it states 3h on max output.
The size is perfect for my hands, I was a bit surprises how slim is was although, only 23mm diameter.
Here it is with a 2 AA maglite and a Vic spartan for comparison
It comes with some extras; A set of O-rings
The pocket clip is very strong But the texturing on the aluminium doesnt help much, its actually quite slippery to handle. Otherwise it feels very strong and sturdily built. And very bright! The bezel is twisted to change the outputs, however I feel that it is a bit too loose for my liking.
Crappy pic of beam comp with the maglite ;
Overall I´m happy with it, very much torch for the money if you ask me

Re: Jetbeam BC20
Good to see your review. I was hoping you'd like it after I praised my BC10 to the heavens! Funny, I thought the bezel was stiff and you think it's loose. I also can't help but notice that your clip is, like mine, slightly squint. I thought the strength was spot on though.
I think mine is great for the money. Especially good at catching the eyes of one of our cats when he's looking to come in at night!I rode over the mountains to Huddersfield. A wilder people I never saw in England.
The men, women and children filled the streets as we rode along, and appeared just ready to devour us.

I really do like it yeah, that is quite funny though Could of course be a slight difference and that the bezel on yours is harder to twist than on mine.
